Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), speaking on “MSNBC Live” on Jan. 16 said that “some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome” when it comes to gun control. Rangel was asked by anchor Thomas Roberts whether new gun control measures passed in New York State should serve as models for other states: “If you’re proud of what New York has done, obviously there is not going to be any perfect policy or perfect law that everybody is going to agree on from both sides saying that this is key perfection
Comments: Wow. This hateful, incompetent, corrupt old man would be apoplectic if a Republican had even thought of uttering a statement like that about a certain segment of society. These people are no longer humorous, they are dangerous and show their true intentions every single day.
He is a tax fraud and a liar. Even I know that you CANNOT have any type of business in a rent controlled apt in NYC , and I have never lived there. and I also know you have to pay taxes on income from rental property. Obviously if you are elected to office the rules do not apply to you - the Rangel mandate. ( all my opinion ). The culture we have to overcome is the corruption of people elected to Government offices.
Dear Charlie, I live in the south. I think thst most of the blue states have cultures that we have to overcome...and fast. Especially that thing where fools like you toss out the race card when you have nothing else to base your stupid accusations on.
My take on history is that the bill of rights was written partly in order to keep the Southern states a part of the union. If any one of those first ten amendments is no longer upheld, then there is nothing else in the Constitution to keep the south as part of the union.
I grew up in Manhattan - Upper East Side. By sheer luck, my Mother was from SC. I noticed *very* quickly after getting out of college, a person could live *very* well in the South for pennies on the dollar compared to NY city - and in a *far* safer environment.
You´re welcome to your Harlem hell-hole. I watched no end of ´social experiments´ fail to lift that area out of the danger zone, and visits back to the city confirm it´s worse now by far than when I left.
Tell ya´ what, Charlie...ya´ll come on down for a visit. We promise all the cornbread you can eat, and doubtful anyone would bust a cap on you simply for being black.
The South has the quality of life you bozos only dream of up there in your 200 square foot, $1000 a month taxpayer subsidized ghettos.
“some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome” OK Charlie, it is time to have a conversation about "culture". In fact, it is long overdue. Exactly WHAT has YOUR culture of corruption and welfare done for America? You insist on being called African-American, so please tell me WHAT the contributions to the betterment of World culture has the continent of Africa produced. Single women giving birth over and over with different fathers, insisting that we owe them something, students who drop out of school at sickening rates, uneducated, non-parented wolf cubs who prey on law abiding society..all of them with their hands out..if you think you and your democrat friends are going to attack the Southern "culture" you should just shut up and go away now. Folks, this is the Obama plan..to make the normal people appear extreme..fight back now!
Is he talking about south Chicago? Maybe south Detroit? or South San Francisco, or south Los Angeles? Maybe it´s south Baltimore or Philly or Boston? Oh, that South? I never thought I´d agree with Ol´ Charlie, but I guess I do (sometimes.)
You mean this idiot is not in jail?....Can´t be...Was this an interview from his cell? Y´all come down here, chump, and take them....But be sure to buy a one way ticket, and be sure to bring zippy with you. I´ll buy you a ...shot...of hemlock
"Southern culture to overcome?" Sounds like Chollie is using his racist dog whistle again. Southern whites = guns.
How would Chollie react if I spoke about "watermelon and fried chicken eating culture"? Or "No Dad culture"? Or "Welfare Queen culture"? Yeah, I think he´d bust a vein, rushing out to call me a racist. Yet, what is he?
This is another one the sleaze balls that at Reagan National on occasion. He is the definition of slimy. He just looks greasy and criminal. When he walks through the crowds, people rush away from him like a crocodile or something. He is absolutely disgusting and he wants to change our culture. I´ll take TN culture over NY anytime. Get lost old man!
I just hope this criminal lives long enough to encounter a Republican who isn´t dirty, that will do a punishing audit on his ´finances.´ Start by flipping the parasites that benefited from his blatant corruption and work your way into this mess. Of course the IRS in general would have to be adjusted and I don´t see a Republican reformer anywhere with the moxie to do what has to be done. Perhaps his criminal associates will end up turning on him. It´s a long shot, but stranger things have happened.
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
